How to Reset Azerite Powers in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

UDEzCMC.jpg

Azerite reforgers have been added on Battle for Azeroth Beta, allowing players to reset Azerite traits on individual pieces of Azerite Armor at an increasing gold cost that resets every week.

It does not matter which piece of Azerite Armor you want to reset, the cost quickly ramps up to prevent players from picking different traits for specific encounters within raids. If you accidentally pick a wrong Azerite trait on your gear, don't worry, Blizzard does not want you to be locked into a set of choices and the initial cost of changing Azerite traits will be negligible. Respeccing becomes pricy if you plan to change your Azerite traits more than 10 times a week.

Number of Resets Gold Cost
1 5 Gold
2 10 Gold
3 10 Gold
4 40 Gold
5 40 Gold
6 80 Gold
7 160 Gold
8 320 Gold
9 640 Gold
10 1,280 Gold
11 2,560 Gold
12 5,120 Gold

Nudara the Shaper is the Azerite Reforger that can be found in Zuldazar Harbor. Talk to him and simply drag and drop a piece of Azerite gear into the slot to reforge its powers. The item can be equipped while reforging and Azerite Armor slots (Head, Shoulders, Chest) do not have individual costs, so if you reforge your Helm twice and Chest Armor five times, the subsequent reset will cost you 320 Gold.

definitely not a fan of that system, I get that it incentivises farming different items for different specs, but it might e.g. require you to have the same item for 2 specs just to swap for traits, and at that point the system becomes just annoying IMO

Yeah this isn't a good system at all. When I first heard about it I thought that it would be like the current tier bonuses that swapped based on your spec, but this? This is garbage.

If that's the case, that's annoying indeed, but you should not have too many of those items that are optimal for two specs. Maybe automatically switch powers when switching specs, just as talents? That would be a mess though.

As the article states, I see this more to prevent switching azerite powers to adapt to a given encounter, not a given spec. This does the job. 

Overall it is well designed, well thought through and implemented as usual. Nothing to complain here, it is way better than allowing people to switch traits as they want whenever they want.

That moment when an awsome armor drops and you have to decide in what spec you can wear it...

To be completely honest, I don't see this as a bad feature. In any case, you will have to carry less gear for your off-specs than you did in Legion. Also keep in mind that rarely will you actually have an armor piece whose Azerite traits will be BiS across multiple specs. Based on the effects we've seen for the armors so far, the biggest upgrade to the armor comes at the very beginning, which is the item-level upgrade.

Only problem is that with the current cost, that's not gonna work. People already spend a couple hundred gold per raid night on flasks, food, tomes etc. Even if you respec your armor three-four times a night, it's still gonna be dirt cheap.

No its not garbage.  It prevents players from constantly changing the traits in their gear.  Its stupid to think that you could just freely change traits to squeeze out .00001% more dps for a specific raid encounter.  Thats also why we will want to have different azerite armor from the raids, for variability in gear options.

Get off your high horse and stop whining.

You're actually missing my point mate. I'm not complaining about the cost to respec, I'd be fine if the armour didn't respec at all. What I think is garbage is that of instead of working like tier sets, that is traits changing depending on specs, it works like legendaries meaning you'll need to have 2-4 of each azerite slot depending on your class and how many specs you play...

They should just (if its not like this already actually) make azerite traits be spec specific, so when you respec if you didn't select azerite traits for that specialization yet, you can do so. Otherwise they automatically change to whatever you selected last time you were in that spec.

Except, that's really not gonna change a whole lot. When changing specs you still need to take into account secondary state weights, trinkets and weapons now, so either way you will be carrying all the other gear that isn't Azerite. 3 more pieces per spec on top of that isn't going to change a whole lot.

I think this Azerite armor change mechanic is more to let players test with different builds in order to find something that best suits them without it being permanent like the Netherlight Crucible.

      Blizzard have clarified what keystone you need to complete this week in order to get the +15 next week and the answer is a +19. The wording on the exact decrease in keys for Season 4 next week has been a little unclear, but it's now clarified that the decrease will in fact be 4.
      M+ Season 4 Decrease (source)
      If you want a +15 next week, you will want to do a +19 this week. Happy dungeon-ing this weekend all! ?

      Blizzard have posted some additional details on the rewards structure for Horrific Visions, from the relation of item level vs. how much you cleared and gathered inside each vision, the weekly tier rewards and the fact that the rewards in general are not RNG but dependent on the milestones you clear.
      You can read more on Horrific Visions in general in our in-depth guide here.
      Horrific Vision Rewards Clarifications (source)
      We’d like to clarify some details about rewards from Horrific Visions. Items are awarded from Horrific Visions at the following milestones:
      Objective Reward iLvl Vision Boss Only 420 Vision Boss + 2 Bonus Objectives 430 Full Clear No Masks 445 Full Clear + 1 Mask 450 Full Clear + 2 Masks 455 Full Clear + 3 Masks 460 Full Clear + 4 Masks 465 Full Clear + 5 Masks 470 Each week, you can obtain each tier of rewards once, with a 100% chance to obtain the best reward that the you were eligible for on any given Horrific Vision.
      For example, if on your first run of the week you clear 2 bonus objectives and defeat the Vision boss, you’ll get an iLvl 430 item. If you then repeat that run, you’ll get the iLvl 420 item that you were eligible for (because you’re no longer eligible for an iLvl 430 item until the weekly reset). If you then perform a full clear, you’ll get the iLvl 445 piece.
      Please note: the presence or absence of other players in Horrific Visions does not influence the chance for an item to be rewarded. All loot tracking is personal, and a character must be alive and sane at the start of an encounter in order to receive credit.

      We have an incoming hotfix for the Infinite Stars trait, with a significant nerf to its damage at all corruption levels, as well as some more issues with the revamped Auction House.
      Corruption Effect (source)
      We’re working on a hotfix that will adjust the Infinite Stars Corruption Effect:
      Items
      Corruption Effects
      Infinite Stars damage at all Corruption levels has been reduced by 25%. This hotfix should go live in the next few hours, and will appear in our next hotfixes update tomorrow.
       
      Auction House Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      We'll once again have two competing Mythic raid race events in the new patch, as we've already heard about Method's, but now we also found out Limit (who were also recently added to the Complexity esports org) will be hosting their own!
      A raid ago, in the Eternal Paalce, we saw Red Bull going up against Method's event, with the two having split ways after previously working together on two events (Uldir and Dazar'alor), and Limit were among the guilds headlining the Red Bull event. With the larger org to back Limit up they've now decided to take Method's route and go it alone, with several guilds also joining them, namely Pieces, Big Dumb Guild, Fat Shark Yes, and Club Camel, with the live broadcast for the event held at Complexity’s GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, Texas. 
      The real winners here are the viewers following the race for World First, with the Eternal Palace having been an amazing experience with so many different perspectives to check out and some great commentators on both sides, driving viewership of the race through the roof (with over 200,000 concurrent twitch viewers at one point). It also seems the split in the events here is EU vs. US, which seems fitting as that's always been a division in the raid race - and a pretty intense one at that.
      When it comes to the race itself, this one's going to be pretty damn awesome, as Eternal Palace was one of the best races in WoW history, with Limit getting extremely close to toppling Method, after they basically threw away a win back in Uldir over one wrong non-resetting call. With 12 bosses the final raid/race of the expansion should last a bit longer than usual, which also makes the Asia server guilds a competitor, despite their 2 day-disadvantage over US and 1 over EU, so we might see an even crazyer race - and we get to watch it all live! As always we'll also be covering the race with daily summaries of the action, in case you prefer to catch up with the events instead of follow them live.
